      Very tasty! I prepared mine in the toaster oven first covering with foil, then uncovering to brown, as I would have on a grill. The green onion was a nice change from spicier things like jalapenos, although I did serve mine with a salsa roja/creme fraiche dip that kicked things up a bit. Thanks for sharing-

      Oh so yummy!!! I made this for 1-2 serving, using two 6 inch flour tortillas, the cheeses and scallion, but did half of a previously prepared "Mexican Marinated Chicken Breast". This made a great lunch, served it with some sour cream and salsa and, for me, it served two!! I also did do the grill method. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Holiday Tag.
